of america than what americans are doing to get high. life in the united states of course a similar in many ways to live anywhere in the developed world. but our nation diverges sharply from the rest of the world in a few crucial ways. americans work hard. 135 hours a year more than the average briton, 240 hours more than the typical french worker and 370 hours, nine weeks, more than the average german. we also play hard. a global survey released in 2008 found americans are more than twice as likely to smoke pot as europeans. 42% of americans have puffed at one point, citizens from various nations were all under 20. we are also four times as likely as spaniards to have done coke and roughly ten times more likely than the rest of europe. quote, we are just a different kind of country, said the u.s. drugs are spokesman tom riley when asked about the survey. quote, we have how your drug use rates, higher crime, many things that with a free and mobile society. different, indeed. there may be no people on earth with a more twisted complex relationship to drugs. much of our preconceived self-imag

the liberal media. take a look america story on the countdown the astroturf of healthcare reform and desperate bid to defeat it. remarkable new video tonight of fake grassroots protesters working from scripts disrupting town hall meeting some democratic lawmakers do not assist on cable tv. then there's this from the new york times. >> the message from the mainstream media seems to be that these things are fake. their so-called astroturf. they're not willing to give credence to the idea that these might be broke people with real emotions. >> john ritter got from peter stood up beside us the highest for my patriotism to if you are your congressmen are an enemy of the state. i can't remember in the last years any movement in america that hasn't gotten sympathetic coverage from the media except for the tea parties earlier this year, except for this. it's obviously part of partisanship and ideological bias sympathetic to disagree. i believe it was ari fleischer who said people need to watch what the senate questionnaire raise criticism. that doesn't wash. i think the media, if they're liberal and f
